European Immunization Week 2015

Published:

The week of 20–25 April 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of European Immunization Week (EIW).

During this week all countries in the European region promote the core message that immunisation of every child is vital to prevent diseases and protect life. The slogan – Prevent. Protect. Immunize. – carries this message across the Region.

The goal of EIW is to increase vaccination coverage by raising awareness of the importance of immunisation among parents and caregivers, health care professionals, policy and decision-makers, and the media.
